Witnesses said the incident started with a fight outside the McDonald’s by the Chicago CTA Red Line stop.

Now, a 17- year- old faces one felony count of unlawful possession of a weapon after turning himself into police on Thursday.

Two other men are also facing charges in connection to the shooting

Jaylun Sanders, 21, of Chicago, faces two counts of first-degree murder, seven counts of first-degree attempted murder and other charges, Chicago police said in a statement Saturday night.

Kameron Abram, 20, of Riverdale, is charged with aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and other charges.

A Cook County judge denied bond for both men and ordered them to remain jailed, calling the shooting a ‘massacre in the middle of Chicago.’
